Burkholderia cepacia complex is a group of Gram-negative, non-spore forming bacilli composed of approximately 17 closely-related species which are grouped into nine genomovars.

B. cepacia has emerged as a human respiratory opportunistic pathogen in individuals with weakened immune systems or chronic lung disease, espeically cystic fibrosis (CS) patients. BCC potentially causes abscesses and bacteremia, but this condition is highly uncommon in patients without CS . Pulmonary colonization of B. cepacia can cause accelerated decline in lung funtions and cause “cepacia syndrome,” which is a progressive pneumonic illness that is fatal and essentially untreatable [4].
